Boston Fern

Nephrolepis exaltata

The lush arching, dangling fronds of Boston fern are especially suited to hanging baskets, but they also look great on a pedestal. To provide the best Boston fern care, give the plant medium to bright light, high humidity, temperatures between 60 and 75 degrees F, and evenly moist soil to ensure success.
